Human Monster Saga[]

Monster Raid Arc[]

Dave is participating in the Super Fight Tournament in C-City at the C-City Super Stadium. This is the third time Dave has participated in the tournament.[1] While watching the match between Max and Suiryu, he was shocked at the strength of the latter, and how easily he defeated his opponent.[2] He defeats Rosie almost as soon as the match begins, flattening him with his Giant Style Crushing.[3] In his second fight, he proves to be no match against Choze, as the latter beats him near death.[4]

Super Fight Arc[]

As he was being taken to the hospital, The Three Crows took him hostage and brought back to the stadium, along with Rosie and Bazuzu.[5] After Rosie becomes a monster, he beats up Dave as payback for their match.[6]

Not much is known about Dave's strength, but he has sent many people to the hospital.[7] He easily defeated Rosie in their match before Rosie could react.
